Eric Schmidt of Google was asked about Web 3.0 and his answer is making the bloggers rounds. I was surprised to learn that Google's CEO is a bit removed from what's really going on out there: Defining Web 2.0 as a marketing term is just plainly incorrect and claim it's based around Ajax is fairly mind-numbing.
I think that Web 2.0 is really centered around user participation, content creation and distribution.
Web 3.0 is about web applications connecting to web applications tasked by people to enrich their lifes.
Web 3.0 is the next step of the information age, allowing for deeper and complex interactions between people and data. It will allow for a much more personal experience.
Pretty promising, scary and filled with opportunities.
